Marshall Islands - Libraries and museums





The College of Marshall Islands Library has 7,000 volumes, while the High Court Library holds 50,000. In Majuro, the Alele Museum, which also houses a library, was completed in 1973. Alele Museum showcases both the traditional and colonial history of the Marshalls. The library houses historical documents and photographs from the trust territory archives. More than 2,000 glass-plate negatives taken between 1890 and 1930 are on loan to the museum. Alele's newest attraction is the elaborate shell collection from Mili Atoll.
